VELVET REVOLVER TO STAND IN FOR VAN HALEN AT HALL OF FAME CEREMONY:
March 1, 2007
Shortly after supposedly reunited Rock And Roll Hame Of Fame inductees Van Halen announced that they’d decided to indefinitely postone their summer 2007 tour with on/off singer David Lee Roth, it has been revealed that hard rock supergroup Velvet Revolver will perform in Van Halen’s place at the upcoming Hall Of Fame ceremony.
Velvet Revolver frontman Scott Weiland and guitarist Slash will also speak on Van Halen’s behalf, according to LAUNCH Radio Networks. It is still uncertain whether any actual members of Van Halen will attend the induction festivities, which take place March 12 at New York City’s Waldorf-Astoria Hotel.
While future recording and touring plans for Van Halen remain very much up in the air, Velvet Revolver (whose lineup includes Stone Temple Pilots’ Weiland and former Guns N’ Roses members Slash, Duff McKagan, and Matt Sorum) have just finished recording their second album, Libertad, and they are slated to tour South America with Aerosmith this April.
